Professional, thorough and a strong ethos

Featured review

Knight Frank selected this as a representative review
Knight Frank are one of the top sales, lettings and property management firms in the UK right now - and have been since the mid-00s. Time spent at the company is pleasant, cooperative and you quickly find your feet with the assistance and help of diligent co-workers. An all-round career company that I can't recommend highly enough.


Professional, thorough, friendly

Nice place to work, pay wasn't good

Really nice environment to work in, team members friendly, management approachable. Inclusive, understanding. I left because I wasn't given a pay rise after a number of years working there, I was given an ever increasing workload, but no pay increase to match, after a while I naturally became demotivated and left.

Good working culture

As a university student, I had my intern at Knight Frank. I felt supported and the colleagues were really nice and friendly. I learnt a lot from this experience.

Known name but toxic company

Company has a good client base but management style is in favour of who they onlyLike and old school behaviour . Hierarchy exists and some Managers people skills very lacking. Expect a lot more than job description is, moves the goals post too often which makes people feel insecure in job role. Toxic environment & allowing intimidation and bullying to happen from managers to lower paid staff. You’re just a number, not a person!

Well known brand..that's it

Really low salaries into every dept. Of course sales and finance work with bonuses. Full of nepotism. You'll keep hearing that his/her son/daughter/cousin/sister/ brother... And worst there always someone in the upper management who takes credit from your own work.

Not a bad place, but could be better

Good easy going working environment, undertanding and easy going management who treat you like adults and give freedom to do your tasks without micromanaging every step.Slow cereer progression that depend not on your achievements, but on the amount of time spent in the company. Minimal pay rise at propmotion with lack of opportunities to negotiate or get more comission.


Chilled work environment


Salary progression is way slower than inflation

Great company to work for

You have the freedom to conduct own income stream and pipleine, bonus structure isn't clear but role is well paid comparing to other estate agencies in the region.

No work life balance and no flexibility.

There is no work life balance, company is not flexible, benefits are really bad. Don't really have anything positive to say. Company is many years behind its peers. They just like to tick boxes.

Good to have on your CV

Not progressive enough. Could do better with internal promotion and paying you the right salary for what you do. Can sometimes be a toxic environment but completely dependent on the department you're in

There is nothing positive to say about this company: toxic environment, zero career progression, arrogant management and no work/life balance. They simply don't care about you




All of the above

Not a very pleasant office to work in

The office was like a big warehouse with desks arranged in lines. There was absolutely no atmosphere or privacy unless you went to the toilet. If you got up to use the photocopier/scanner you felt everyone was looking at you. It felt like being back at school in the classroom!It would have been a much better place if the desks were organised better with screens etc.


Staff were friendly enough


Office set up and work very repetitive

Can be demanding

Poor Job Security

If you work hard, it is no guarantee that your job role is safe in Knight Frank. Like most big firms, Knight Frank say they hire the best management. But often they are those who are 'here today and gone tomorrow' (sadly not fast enough). They are the new broom and often get rid of experienced staff, after which they soon leave to spend more time with their bonus, leaving the firm in a worst mess.


West End location


Lowest pay they can get away with. Job security so poor that most staff in HR, Marketing and Operations dont last 2 years.

I had a great time developing my career at Knight Frank in Leasehold Reform and Valuation Departments

Knight Frank was a fantastic place to work. It was very competitive with very targets, but the rewards were always there. I left after 15 years as I wanted a change and no longer wanted to work that was specialised / departmentalised.


Fabulous brand, with huge investment in marketing and research.


Each area of valuation was departmentalised which meant each position can be quite narrow.

Built great relationships but some managers have no skills

Really like some of the people I have worked with but technical work is not very much appreciated by senior management, sometimes appearance counts more.

Awful company

workers and managers act fake, as if they are suporting you, but instead they stab you in the back. Managers are liars, and dont do there job right

Good place to work and good people. A typical day was unpredictable, quite full on but i don't like a boring role. Management listen and take onboard feedback.

Would not recommend

The environment is not conducive with work/life balance, there is a blame culture from top to bottom The archaic policies prevent natural talent advancement

Productive and Fun

I worked there for 10 years. it was my first job and allowed me to grow in the company and learn new things. I was grateful for the opportunity but needed to move on.
